miConverter™ GX/T PoE/D

10/100/1000 Ethernet Media Converter with PoE power option

miConverter GX/T

The miConverter GX/T PoE/D is a miniature rate-switching 10/100/1000 RJ-45 copper to 100/1000Base-X fibre media converter with Power over Ethernet capability

The miConverter GX/T PoE/D fibre connection options include ST, SC and LC fixed fibre connectors, or SFP transceivers, enabling you to use different data rates, fibre types and wavelengths, including Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing (CWDM) wavelengths to increase the bandwidth capacity of fibre infrastructure.

Deployments are simplified with the plug and play capability – both the fibre and RJ45 ports support auto-negotiation to achieve the best possible mode of operation between the devices.
Auto-negotiation can also be disabled on both ports for manual configuration using DIP-switches on the module, which is useful when the GX/T PoE/D is connected to a non-negotiating device and the configuration parameters must be set manually.

Network flow control on both the RJ45 and Fibre ports is managed using the Pause function – sending out a pause signal to its link partner, instructing it to slow down data transmission, preventing network congestion.

Link fault conditions are reported via a DIP switch configured LED, and visual diagnostic information is also provided through LED indicators to assist in network installation and maintenance.

The miConverter GX/T PoE/D supports AC or DC external power options, via an external universal power adapter or 2-pin terminal connection as well as Power over Ethernet.

An 18-module powered chassis is also available to consolidate individual modules into a rack-mount form factor.

Fibre Distance Extension with PoE

PoE switches are used to provide connectivity and power via Copper UTP cabling to powered devices such as Wi-Fi Access Points, VoIP phones and CCTV cameras with a distance limitation of 100m.
If a greater distance is required, fibre can be deployed to extend the distance to the powered devices in remote locations.

This application example shows how the miConverter GX/T PoE/D converters are deployed to enable plug and play fibre connectivity from the PoE switches.

The miConverter GX/T PoE/D is powered by the UTP patch cable, and converts the copper to fibre to connect the PoE IP camera. At the remove end of the fibre, an OmniConverter PoE media converter converts the fibre back to copper and injects PoE (up to 60W) to power the camera.
